Some people would include FORREST GUMP in the list but many other conservatives disagree. I’d like to hear both sides of the issue.

Hmmmm. Scroll back one more year to 1983 and catch “Uncommon Valor”. Great movie, IMHO.

Not in the last 25 years, I think.

Call me crazy, but Field of Dreams should be on the list. It honors both baseball AND fathers. Can’t get more true-blue American (and conservative) than that. :-)

The Postman was not included because it was an embarrassment to moviedom.

I would like to add the following to the list :

Patton ( May be too old to make the 25 year cut )
The Pianist
We Were Soldiers
Defiance
Black Hawk Down
The Patriot
Life Is Beautiful
Bella
and the latest one from Clint Eastwood -— Gran Torino

Also, would anyone want to include Spider Man 1 in the mix ?

Only the last 25 years my friend. If we included every movie since the beginning of film history, we'd have to include hundreds of films made prior to the Boomer generation.

Patton is one of my all-time favorite films. (It was released almost 40 years ago).

Barbershop

A "coming of age" story about the son of a deceased barber, who takes over then sells his father's barbershop, but not before he learns to understand how his father could run the business day after day for his family.

Gattaca

In a future where the genetically engineered are given preference and the natural born are stopped from succeeding at birth, a naturall born man does not accept the fate society has in store for him, and pursues his own dreams.

Pursuit of Happyness

A man tries to better himself against nearly overwhelming odds to provide for his son.

I’d like to include THE MISSION: Robert DeNiro and Jeremy Irons team up to make a tour de force about human freedom vs. human oppression in South America, as Catholic Church abandons Christian natives to Portuguese slavers because it’s politically expedient.

THE UNTOUCHABLES seems like a good conservative movie. It celebrates bravery, duty and anti-corruption. Sean Connery was absolutely brilliant in that movie as the incorruptible cop. Needs to be watched again in light of what’s happening in Chicago today.
